Lewis Hamilton admits he’s not ready for children – yet

Lewis Hamilton will stay in F1 until the end of 2025 at Mercedes


Lewis Hamilton has announced he’s not ready to have children yet, saying he wants to focus on his Formula 1 career without compromising his time before retirement.

Hamilton‘s only had a few confirmed relationships since making his F1 debut in 2007, and currently spends his family time focussing on his young niece and nephew.

The Mercedes driver has also previously revealed that they’re are the only people in his family pay homage to his knighthood, saying they call him ‘Sir Uncle’.

“I don’t have time for that, not at the moment,” Hamilton told Swiss newspaper Blick. “No, I enjoy being an uncle!

“I haven’t decided on this big step yet. I still have goals with the race car – and everything has to take a back seat. I want to do my job 100 per cent.

“Of course, you have to find the necessary balance with your private life and make compromises. But fortunately that day hasn’t come yet.”

Hamilton: I could continue past eighth title

Hamilton also said he could continue racing past winning an eighth title, which would make him the sole record-holder for drivers’ championships.

He was set to move past Michael Schumacher‘s tally in 2021 until the hugely controversial Abu Dhabi Grand Prix, where “human error” by race director Michael Masi cost Hamilton victory in favour of Max Verstappen.

Despite inching closer to battling for victory, Mercedes are currently pinning their big hopes on the W15 in 2024 after announcing a full concept revamp from their ‘no-sidepods’ approach.

Hamilton is set to stay at Mercedes until the end of 2025, when there’s the next big shake-up in regulations and he’ll be nearly 41 years old.

“Without a great car, you can hardly achieve the big goals in Formula 1, nobody,” Hamilton added. “I never said that the eighth title was a stop signal for me. But I will only know that when I actually get there.”
